Daniil Medvedev, Stefanos Tsitsipas, Alexander Zverev, Andrey Rublev, Pablo Carreño Busta and Casper Ruud, six of the top eight seeded, met the predictions and made it to the quarterfinals of the Cincinnati Masters 1000. The only infiltrators are Félix Auger-Aliassime, who hit Matteo Berrettini this Thursday, and the surprise of the Benoit Paire tournament.
At the top of the frame, Medvedev (top seeded) continues on a streak: the Russian has already accumulated seven wins in a row. After his title in Toronto and his debut in Ohio, he defeated Grigor Dimitrov 6-3, 6-3 and in the quarterfinals he will face, in the reissue of his match in Tokyo, the Spanish Carreño Busta (7th), Hubert Hurkacz’s executioner with partials of 7-6 (6), 7-6 (3).
In that same key are also the Russian Andrey Rublev (4th), who also took out Gael Monfils in two tiebreaks (7-2 and 7-5), and the tournament cap Paire, who got rid of John Isner 7-6 (1), 6-7 (2), 6-1.
In the lower zone it remains the trend in favor of Top players, with the two Argentine hopes already eliminated. Teuton Zverev (3rd), who has eight successes in a row including Gold in Tokyo, had a quiet afternoon by beating Guido Pella, having a fabulous week, by 6-2 and 6-3.
This Friday his rival will be the norwegian Ruud (8th), of magnificent performance before Diego schwartzman to eliminate it by 6-3, 6-4. Finally, in the night session, Tsitsipas (2nd) defeated Lorenzo Sonego 5-7, 6-3, 6-4 and will have a tough nut to crack as Auger-Aliassime, who with a score of 6-4, 6-3 gave the note against Berrettini, who showed some physical problems.
